Contractor uses cutting tool to clean construction debris

Problem: Sylvan Tieger offers a full range of plumbing and drain cleaning services to commercial, residential and institutional customers in the New York City area. Much of that is new construction. Tieger noticed that construction debris — like plaster and cement powder — often deposited in drainlines. He needed a way to easily clear those drainlines.

Solution: Tieger tried the ClogChopper cutting tool from General Pipe Cleaners. With six self-sharpening blades, the ClogChopper digs into encrusted debris and root masses, easily grinding up stoppages, scale and crystallized urine — without risking pipe damage. It works in both directions — all in one operation. The spherical design maneuvers around tight bends and traps, thoroughly and safely cleaning metal, plastic and clay pipes. Available in 1-, 1 1/2-, 2-, 2 1/2-, 3- and 4-inch sizes, it can be used to clear stacks, downspouts and mains — as well as for pipe lining jobs.

Result: “You quickly get a buildup of hardened material inside pipe walls,” says Tieger. “ClogChopper makes short work of those problems.” 800/245-6200;
